Child Care Policy Research Consortium projects (1995-2015)

Craig, Donna; Ferguson, Daniel; Stephens, Samuel A.

The year 2015 marks the 20th anniversary of the Child Care Policy Research Consortium (CCPRC). CCPRC was created by the Administration for Children and Families (ACF) in 1995 to support national capacity for sound child care research, identify and respond to critical issues, and link child care research with policy and practice. Supported by the Office of Planning, Research and Evaluation (OPRE) and the Office of Child Care (OCC) (formerly the Child Care Bureau), the Consortium includes former and current grantees and contractors funded by ACF to conduct child care policy-related research. In partnership with OPRE, the CCPRC holds an annual research meeting that builds on work, webinars, and other activities by the Consortium and its workgroups throughout the year. At the meeting, CCPRC members are joined by Child Care and Development Fund State Administrators, technical assistance partners, and Federal staff from other agencies and departments to consider emerging research findings, questions, and methods that relate to improved outcomes for children and families. In its 20-year existence, the CCPRC has included more than 170 projects. To celebrate the CCPRC's 20th anniversary for its 2015 meeting in Washington, DC, on December 2nd and 3rd, Research Connections has produced this Topic of Interest, which features all of the OPRE- or Child Care Bureau-funded child care research and policy projects in its collection.
